Re: New mount registration and license key (PEM Pro and APCC Pro) questions

skester@...
 

Thanks Ray, I had completely missed the license request step and thought the key in the manual was all I needed.  Once I received the true key I was able to complete the registration without issue.

Ray,

Mission accomplished! I took your sample horizon file, modified it using Notepad and uploaded it to APCC PRO. It worked as it should.

Yours truly,

Hi Jack,

Sorry, I took a few days of vacation, so I haven't been following posts.

I did answer this question via the private email you sent me the other day, but I will post an answer here as well in case it comes up in the future.

1. APCC's horizon limits are just simple ASCII text files with 360 az/alt values, one for each degree in azimuth.
2. The expected file extension is ".hrz".
3. The first three lines of the file must be the following:

# Astro-Physics GTO Horizon File v1.0
# Points 360
# Az Alt

4. After the third line, there must be 360 more lines, one line per degree in azimuth.
5. North is azimuth=0, proceeding clockwise (i.e., East=90).
6. In each line, azimuth must be an integer value followed by an altitude value, both in degrees. The altitude value can be a decimal number.
7. You can load the horizon limits file via the Horizon Tracking Limits Editor window in APCC.

Attached is an example file, which you can edit with the built-in Windows editor, Notepad.exe. To do what you want just edit the values

Subject: [ap-gto] APCC PRO and Horizon Editor

I used my Theodolite App on my iPhone to get the horizon altitude
every 5-10 degrees for 360 degrees of azimuth. I created a table of
the values and would like to create the horizon in APCC PRO on my
laptop in the house and then somehow import it into APCC PRO on my
observatory PC. I keep looking at the manual and it explains how to use the mouse to drag and create the horizon line. What I want to do is add horizon data points one at a time and create my horizon. So far I have been unsuccessful.

Does the mount have to be connected to APCC with my location selected
to create a horizon? It seems that should not be the case? Or am I doing something wrong?

It depends on how well the mirror is locked down. If you are unsure, you can ask A-P for a trial APCC Pro key to see how it works with your setup. It doesn't take very much time to create a model, and you can even do this type of testing on a moonlit night.

Re: Alt/Az Bookmarks not saving

Ray Gralak
 

Hi Renan,

I just tried it, and Alt/Az bookmarks are being saved correctly in V5.30.10. It could be the driver does not have permission to write to the folder, or the file containing the coordinates (settings.apdb).

Also, you should make sure to click the "Add" button, and not the "Save" button. "Save" alters the values in the selected row. "Add" will create a new row, which is what you want.

Re: New mount registration and license key (PEM Pro and APCC Pro) questions

Ray Gralak
 

Hi Scott,

This morning I attempted to install PEM Pro using the license key listed on the 1100GTO manual front cover. On
startup PEM Pro tells me my 'trial has expired', note I never had a trial period. When I then enter the key and hit OK
the program simply exists. Uninstalling and re-installing PEM Pro made no difference, not sure what I am doing
wrong.
All PEMPro V3 installers have an expiration date, so maybe the installer is old. You can download the latest public version of PEMPro from this link:

https://www.siriusimaging.com/downloads/PEMProV3.exe

Regarding the PEMProV3 license key, you should find a 15-character license key in one of the manuals for the mount. Using that you can register your mount using the PEMPro registration utility, which should be on a USB stick that came with your mount. If you can't find the utility, you can download the registration utility from this link:

https://www.siriusimaging.com/downloads/ApPEMProV3LicenseRequest.exe

Re: APCC and Starry Night Pro 7

I have now install APCC on my machine and so far so good. I watch quite a few videos which were very useful
however I am stuck with Starry Night Pro 7.
When I try to connect it to APCC virtual port I get the message that It is already connected but the port in APCC
does not show it.
Maybe Starry Night Pro 7 is connected via the AP V2 ASCOM Driver?

The driver can have many client applications simultaneously using it while only using a single virtual port. Thus, you won’t see an extra virtual port "light up" in APCC when you connect via the AP V2 ASCOM Driver.

Re: Pointing Model for Unguided Imaging on a C11" EdgeHD (with primary mirror locked)

Ray Gralak
 

Hi Bruce,

I am once again re-thinking if it makes sense to attempt unguided imaging on my C11" EdgeHD where I have now
locked down my primary mirror and upgraded to the Optec FastFocus system where focusing is done solely using
the secondary mirror. This should eliminate the major mirror flop/shift issues due to moving the primary mirror. My
scope is on an AP1100 in a permanent observatory but I do not have encoders. I use a ZWO ASI2600MM Pro
camera (APS-C sensor) and usually use the 0.7x focal reducer. The question is: Is it even worth the effort to try
building a model to go unguided imaging or is a refractor still the way to go? Guiding works ok but it can be finicky
at times.
It depends on how well the mirror is locked down. If you are unsure, you can ask A-P for a trial APCC Pro key to see how it works with your setup. It doesn't take very much time to create a model, and you can even do this type of testing on a moonlit night.

Re: New mount registration and license key (PEM Pro and APCC Pro) questions

skester@...
 

Thank you Karen, I will call on tomorrow and register the mount. My planned use of PEM Pro was purely too measure the native and PEC corrected PE of the mount, not to replace the factory curve, so nothing that can't wait. The timing of the mount's arrival could not have been better as we have great conditions in the south east this weekend along with no moon.  I'm taking the mount out tonight for the first time and was planning to use the factory PEC curve.

Thanks,
Scott


Re: New mount registration and license key (PEM Pro and APCC Pro) questions

Hi Scott,

 

When you purchase through a dealer, we do not register you as our customer (even if we shipped directly to you) until you contact us.  You can mail in the registration card, or just give us a call on Monday and give Paige or Daleen your info.  They’ll email an APCC license key to you.

 

I’ll let George or Howard weigh in on PemPro, but I can tell you the program – and a PEC specific to your mount – is already loaded in the CP4 control box. 

 

Enjoy your new mount!

I received my 1100GTO on Friday.  I purchased through a vendor, so it's not clear to me if AP has my contact info, or if I need to mail in the mount registration card?  They clearly have my name and address as the mount was shipped direct from AP to me, but they may not have my email or phone number. 

I recall reading on CN that the APPC license key is delivered via email, how do I go about requesting that?

This morning I attempted to install PEM Pro using the license key listed on the 1100GTO manual front cover.  On startup PEM Pro tells me my 'trial has expired', note I never had a trial period.  When I then enter the key and hit OK the program simply exists.  Uninstalling and re-installing PEM Pro made no difference, not sure what I am doing wrong.

Thanks,
Scott

run time error

richard payne
 

While imaging once in a while  I get a "runtime error"
which shuts the program down  and also 
get a " lost communication with mount" error.
I realize it's probably a Windows 10 thing.
Anybody else get these?

Could that web server link be added in the GPS drop down selector?

Bruce,

 

Attached are 2 images showing my version of solid Celestron mirror locks.

First, I focus the mirror on a star using the Celestron focuser. Then I insert my mirror locks and snug them.  

That locks the mirror and eliminates all movement. Then I center the travel of my Moonlite focuser

for an eyepiece or imager. Whenever necessary I can loosen the mirror locks if the Moonlite focuser’s

travel is used up (very rare).

 

Bob
